's progressive. call or click today. >>> republican charlie crist ran for governor of florida the usual way. by eating possum at the local eating possum festival. by shaking a lot of hands. charlie crist knew florida and he knew florida politics right down to the last rescued sea turtle. shortly crist was a moderate republican and a proud member of the reality-based community as a republican. as florida governors go, governor crist was popular. he carried approval ratings of over 50%. but then something happened to florida governor charlie crist. something happened to his career. in february of 2009, in the worst of the economic crisis with the nation shedding hundreds of thousands of jobs, charlie crist hugged the democratic president, he hugged president obama at an event in fort meyers and said that president obama's economic stimulus plan was going to be good for florida and good for the country. a few months after that, he announced instead of running for governor, he was going to make a bid for the senate. at the time the idea was to keep a republican in that senate seat. charlie cris
felt their chances were better in ohio than say virginia or florida was because of the auto industry. as you've mentioned before, one in eight jobs in this state are connected to the auto industry. the auto bailout is very popular. the president never missed a chance on a campaign trail in ohio to talk about how he had gotten the auto industry back on track and how governor romney opposed that bailout. >> thank you very much. we have breaking news of this moment. cbs news projects that mitt romney will carry the state of south carolina. no great surprise. mccain won that state by 9% in 2008, but we can now project that mitt romney will carry the state of south carolina. bob and nora, state of ohio again. it's so critical tonight. it might be said that if the president wins reelection tonight, he may have won it in 2009 when he signed that auto bailout. >> it very well might be the case. i still don't understand why governor romney went to cleveland today. this is the most heavily democratic part of the country and one of the most heavily democratic counties. maybe he was just trying
, not only virginia but also florida in the southeast to be competitive in this race tonight, but that is not enough. as we move to the midwest he's going to have po pick off one of the key states in barack obama's fire wall, either ohio or wisconsin because you see what happens right there, if the president gets both ohio and wisconsin he only five votes away from an electoral lock. >> well, this is the difficult route that br has. he has to take the atlantic coasts sta s states and move i into the midwest and start picking off midwestern states. early in the night if he sees trouble in those, it's going to be a very difficult night for mitt romney. he has to win those three atlantic coast states. >> if he doesn't, if the president wins any one if we go back to the what if board in the middle. any one of these in play where he's ahead or tied he has 270 electoral votes. >> let's head off to richmond, virginia, with amy klobuchar robach. i know you're at a dnc headquarters. >> reporter: i'm wearing purple. it was completely coincidental but very appropriate because this is a
is basically what we're seeing right now. incredibly tight race that we are looking to florida, virginia, ohio, all of the state's right now they're too close to call for any indication of which way this is going to break. there has been an awful lot of confidence among the obama folks of the last few days, especially predicting a wind that only in the electoral college, but the popular vote. predicting it to go the other way. that confidence, they say, all comes from the fact that they had been seeing consistent leads in polls throughout the battle ground states, many of them throughout the country and certainly enough, they said, to take over the top of this. still and wait and see mode. a sense of confidence that you would possibly get from any type of candidate at this point in a race that is this close. and so well there is confidence to make it is to be expected that he would not hear anything else out of the obama campaign this early in such a close race. neil: okay. thank you. one of the state's we will be keeping a close eye on. keep in mind, nevada is interesting for a number of reas
, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the results already by the people that have come out early and that's why the campaigns spent so much time on getting out the vote early, this ground game on these early votes. >> pelley: we'll come back to you early and often. john dickerson is our cbs news political director. john is going to be showing us the various ways that the candidates can get to the 270 electoral votes necessary to twin presidency. john? >> well, first, scott, let's follow up on what bob was saying. we're going to dispatch with 41 of the states, the majority of the country cbs estimates based on the polling that those states are either going to go to barack obama or to mitt romney. that gives barack obama a start where he's likely to get 237 electoral votes, mitt romney is likely to get 191 electoral votes. so here we are at the beginning of the evening, nothing has been called, it's all possibility. so what is the easiest past for each candidate to get to that
. >> appreciate all the work you are doing. >> then back to boston to await returns with often eye on florida, ohio and virginia, team romney expects as they go, so will the nation. for months despite record spending, record campaign activity, record advertising, neither candidate really been able to break away from the other. tonight in boston there is optimism. hope, anxiousness. preparation for what could be a very late night that could spill in tomorrow or beyond. megyn, bret? >> thank you. >> bret: now to chief white house correspondent ed henry in chicago. sned >> good evening, bret. last night, the obama camp was predicting a blow-out. we got off the phone with the senior advisors saying they have to admit florida, virginia, and slew of battlegrounds are too close to call. >> president obama tried to displace calm and confidence today -- >> i expect we will have a good night. >> it was clear last night the magnitude of the moment set in. as he waits to find out whether he will secure his place in history as a transformational president or mere one-term wonder. >> he said yes, we can. a

's why so many workers are moving to the lone star state. florida is a situation. there comes a point where etch auto of us has to decide what kind of country we want. many americans are depressed because traditional america seems to be disappearing. certainly president obama is a big government progressive guy and now he has a second term. talking points doesn't expect the president to change his philosophy is he going to spend enormous amount of money on social justice. and he is going to take money from successful americans in in order to finance his vision. could be wrong but i don't believe that's going to help the economy very much. however, the president is going to do the social justice thing no matter what. in texas, the government does not believe that redistributing income is its responsibility. all does not believe that you should micromanage the lives of its citizens. if you are dumb enough to ride a motorcycle without a mel helmet and you wind up in a cemetery it's your call. trust me nobody is banning 16-ounce soft drinks in waco. again it goes back to everybody has a g

night. they were convinced going into election day that they had numbers in florida, virginia, ohio and colorado. they were talking with their get out the vote people on the ground in those states, they were saying, yeah, we're finding people who hadn't planned to go out and vote, and we're finding lots of them. but there just weren't enough to combat the numbers the obama campaign had run up. what really probably killed and torpedoed romney's candidacy was this idea that the obama campaign portrayed him as a rich guy who didn't care about regular folks. even though the romney campaign tried to counter that by saying, well, he can help you even if he doesn't understand you, in the end, megyn, it just wasn't loud enough to breakthrough those negative perceptions. megyn: john roberts, thank you. >>> one well known political analyst is issuing a warning to the gop, that governor romney's loss will require serious soul searching to find out what went wrong. laura ingraham's here next with her take on last night and the next election. the new storm threatening some already hard-hit victi

arizona that arizona could gain 20,000 jobs and $1 billion in revenue, states like florida could gain $100 million in revenue because of monies they don't have to put into their own health care system and increased economic activity this would bring to the state, this is absurd and irrational position. there's only one reason republican governors are doing this. it is because they don't want to be primaried. this goes to the central issue for republicans. are they going to tell the crazy in the primary, the extreme right that have created a minority status for this party, that the positions they want the party to hold are ungovernable, they cannot win elections? are they going to stand up to them the way they didn't stand up to rush limbaugh, the way they didn't stand up to donald trump, stay rational positions or let the inmates be in charge of the asylum -- >> hoeld on -- >> hold on -- >> i'll let you respond in a moment. the other point i want to make is also in the days since the election we've been hearing about wanting to be the kindler, gentler republican party and say we care about
47%. not exactly a number he wants to be thinking about. let's go through a few states. in florida what we reported on election day was at the recount number, less than 50,000 vote lead for the president. his lead expanded to about 75,000, still less than a percentage vote. florida clearly incredibly close. ohio was a two-point margin on election day. on election night after the election it's gotten up to three points with rounding, 51-48 as you can seechlt ohio getting close to the national average. then there is virginia which has been on the national number. on election day it was 51.48. it's expanded to 51-47. then colorado, 51-47 on election day. the big surprise is with rounding, 52-46. we'll talk about colorado in a minute. let's bring in my colleague at the white house, nbc's mike viqueira, former adviser to george bush and sarah feagin and doug thorn nell. welcome all. good to be with you. sarah, the colorado number is the one most striking. these provisional ballots has come in. it takes this country three weeks to count votes. it's a good thing we weren't waiting here. w
